A Church with a Heart for our Community

July 24th Friday

Greetings in the marvellous name of Jesus Christ – THE Risen Saviour! I think this is a “wonder day” …I wonder what the day will bring! Yes – it is the day that God has made for us and we will ‘rejoice and be glad in it’ – thanking God that it is a Friday and the weekend is coming. I trust that you had a grand week with many adventures and blessings and divine appointments. I pray you are looking forward to gathering with your church family to celebrate God. Today I will be praying for you, asking Father to release multi-faceted healing, unexplainable peace, uncontainable joy, and incredible hunger for His presence.

Yesterday I received a telephone call from an individual who wanted to share her faith with me…and we had an interesting conversation. I listened carefully to her words and responded in what I hope was appropriate. She did not identify her background and never asked for mine. She seemed a little surprised that I had a good working knowledge of God’s Word. We talked about our routines and study habits…she wanted to know why I would spend time with God each morning….like -why in the morning?

So, I shared a few thoughts: because┬áHis Word says that the faithful and steadfast love of God is revealed each morning – because new mercies are available every┬ámorning, because joy comes in the morning, because He listens every morning, because He shows his face every morning, because He offers help each morning, because He empowers each day in the morning, because Jesus’ habit was to meet with the Father in the morning….about this time my friend said that was enough!

My friend talked a bit more, shared her background, wanted to know if she could call back at another time…I shared my background and told her she could call back if she did not try to convert me to her way of thinking. I promised that I would not try to convert her either. You never know who is going to enter your day…no wonder we are told to be prepared to give a reason for our hope at any moment (1 Peter 3:15).

Have a great day … be blessed!
